Investment broker Howard Burgess's body is found in the toilet of his unpaid private jet when Tony Connor's incorrect repo attempt fails. His embezzlement ruined many Miami households, including that of family father Carlos Guzman, who is arrested for attacking Howard's widow and presumed heir-accomplice. Their adolescent son Daniel Burgess also was on the plane, and lies about meeting his dad. A second plane repo attempt is ordered by the owner and investment victim Gary Archer, unlike the first.

Did You Know?


The episode has certain parallels to the events surrounding the Bernie Madoff pyramid scheme, in which he bilked money from countless investors, was arrested and sent to prison. The anger many of his "investors" felt at being taken for so much money is closely paralleled. See more »


The registration number of Howard's plane is N0153, which can be clearly seen painted on its side. All US registered aircraft are assigned numbers beginning with the letter N. However, by FAA rule, there can be a maximum of five numbers and/or letters following the N. And a zero is never the first character following the N. The zero in this case cannot be a misreading of the letter O, because the letters O and I are never used in N-numbers. See more »


Calleigh Duquesne: This is my first case of death by winch.
Jesse Cardoza: You haven't changed much since the day I met you, have you?
Calleigh Duquesne: Oh, my gosh. That was my first day, wasn't it?
Jesse Cardoza: [laughing to himself] Yeah, I remember - the very enthusiastic lateral.
Calleigh Duquesne: I was right to be! This is a great lab.
Jesse Cardoza: Yeah, it's certainly not the broom closet I remember.

Get Your Head Out Of The Head!
24 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This a Bernie Madoff story of a billionaire who bilked people out of millions of dollars. Unlike Madoff, this crook winds up dead, stuffed in a toilet bowl aboard an airplane! Yikes, not a great assignment for young CSI intern "Walter Simmons" (Omar Benson Miller) who has to go through the entire waste system for clues.

Anyway, the two questions that need to be answered are (1) who murdered him and (2) where did a lot of his cash go? After a couple of repo attempts by some strange dudes, some odd interviews with the usual suspects,with the usual twists and turns, it comes to a satisfying conclusion.

In all; it was another interesting CSI-Miami story of violence and greed.
